Original Paper


In this paper, the adaptive projective synchronization of dynamical network with distributed time delays is investigated. Network with unknown topology and network with both unknown topology and system parameters of node dynamics are considered respectively. Based on Lyapunov stability theory and LaSalle’s invariance principle, the sufficient conditions for achieving projective synchronization are obtained. Numerical examples are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
